Murder by the Book Mystery Book Club: Light on Bone

Murder by the Book Mystery Book Club: Light on Bone

Do you like to read and talk about mysteries? Then join us for monthly book discussions, fresh perspectives, new authors and a friendly atmosphere! We meet virtually via Zoom.

This month we will discuss Light on Bone by Kathryn Lasky, who is well-known for her popular children’s and teen books and has now created an exciting new adult amateur sleuth mystery featuring the famous painter Georgia O’Keefe. After suffering a nervous breakdown in 1933, Georgia travels to New Mexico to paint and discovers the slain body of a priest in the desert. Or is he a priest? More murder follows and a series of intricate twists and turns lead to a thoroughly unforeseen denouement. More than a who-dunnit mystery, this is a narrative of healing and resurrection of spirit.

 Only the e-audiobook version will be available for Cheshire residents to download from Libby from January 1-15.  Please request copies of the book via your local library.

You will need an up-to-date Cheshire Library card in order to download the book. Non-Cheshire residents will need to get the book or e-book from their own library.

Please be sure that you know how to access Libby from the Cheshire Library website before the book is released. The book can be downloaded to a smartphone, iPad or computer. For assistance, contact the library at ref@cheshirelibrary.org or 203-272-2245.

Our host for Murder by the Book is Barbara Ritchie, who can be reached at baritchie30@gmail.com.
